Red Pepper Burns is a doctor with red hair and a temper to match it but he has a big heart. He drives at top speeds in this car the "green imp". He provides amusement and aid to his neighbors who live on either side of his house. He never comes to their dinner parties on time because his is "always on a case". He is well loved by his friends and neighbors. He meets a widow who is living with his neighbors and proceeds to court her is a regular "Burnsy" fashion.
